Like mighty dragons flying in the clouds, studios of all sizes gain powerful render resources with cloud rendering supporting their wings. With Avere, even small studios can overcome resource limitations and support creativity without moving data or adding expensive servers. Companies like Important Looking Pirates have taken flight, moving excess rendering demand onto the cloud to empower artists, meet deadlines, and take on more projects at one time.
As visual effects become more compute-intensive, it can be difficult to expand compute infrastructure to meet those needs. On the one hand, you want lots of compute power when you need it. On the other hand, you don't want to pay for a massive infrastructure or guess and how many rental nodes you will need and when. A new technique called "cloud bursting" allows studios to use cloud compute for rendering applications without moving large amounts of data. This videos gives you all the details.
Visit Avere Systems in Booth #N629 at the 2017 NABShow New York to search for the dragon in the Game of Stones. This virtual reality experience will take you on a quest through a castle, collecting gems to fuel your adventure.
Why wait? Start your quest today by scheduling a meeting with the Avere Media Team while you’re at the show. We’ll be in touch to schedule a time at the event that works for you.
Expanding your compute capabilities doesn't have to be a nightmare. By bursting to the cloud, you can utilize cloud compute resources without having to uproot your data storage onto the cloud. This ebook provides a great introduction to network-attached storage (NAS), hybrid cloud NAS and, of course, cloud bursting into cloud-based compute resources. In this special edition, you'll discover how cloud render farms can be combined with your existing on-premises NAS to take advantage of unmatched cloud scalability without overhauling your current infrastructure.
